Magical Princess was truly one of the most enlightening experiences I have ever had. It genuinely shaped my perception on the depth and history of this city and provided and unforgettable experience full of iconic yet meaningful moments that are forever tattooed on my soul and will surely never be forgotten.

Overall was a very cool experience. The staff is very friendly. The boat stops right in front of the statue of liberty and you will have enough time to take your pic and enjoy the view. The only thing I didn’t love is the boat, it’s kinda old. Other than that… thumbs up!

There was only one negative, if you were standing out on the back of the boat you could not hear the lady who was giving the verbals on the tour very well It would also have been helpful if when you purchase the tickets online they would have told you where you could park or could buy parking. We paid $35 to park for two hours.
